My friend from college is running in the New York Marathon this upcoming weekend and I couldn’t be more excited for her. She’s been training for months and I can only imagine the overwhelming sense of accomplishment she’ll feel when she finally crosses the finish line, not to mention the excitement of being around so many other runners. My longest race so far has only been 10 miles, but I felt great at the end of it and hope to one day run a marathon as well, just to prove to myself that I can.
This graphic cutoff sweatshirt by Firedaughter Clothing would be a great motivator during months of training and early morning runs or a great gift for someone’s who’s completed a marathon. With bold colors and large, graphic letters screen printed onto eco-fleece, this isn’t your typical sweatshirt. Can you think of anything else so comfortable and stylish?
When you’re training for a marathon, you spend so much time running that it can feel as if you’re living in your workout clothes. After all of your hard work, the last thing you want is to feel frumpy. This tie dye t-shirt by Tie Mee is the perfect solution for runners looking to be a bit more stylish. The horizontal dye pattern is a great twist on the typical circle tie dye, and the cotton and spandex blend is sure to stay in place during your workouts.
A great pair of running pants or shorts can be key to a comfortable run. These 7/8ths foldover workout pants by Cast Couture are perfect for jogging, yet stylish enough to be worn to the grocery store. Buyers can choose between six colors and the pants can be custom sized according to specific body measurements.
I wish I could be there to cheer my friend on over the weekend. Maybe someday we’ll be able to run one together, but for now, I’m happy to start with a half marathon and work my way up.
